Billy Monday Doily

I took a little break from stitching to crochet this lovely doily. It's in Crochet Traditions magazine Fall 2011. It appeared originally in The Modern Priscilla
Feb 1914. I used no.10 thread by South Maid in Ecru and a 7 hook. It's appx 16" round.

Birthday Mail Art

Got this wonderful piece in the mail yesterday from Leigh for our Sampler Guild's annual birthday mailart exchange. Such a wonderful little cake design on the front. The back has a beautiful floral border with matching lining. She sewed two pockets and stashed me some wonderful needles inside. I was so delighted to receive such a lovely piece.
